Hamilton, the reigning F1 champion and current championship leader, is not happy he has to share the limelight with so many other sports.

Lewis Hamilton does not anticipate remaining in Formula One after he gives up driving.

The five-time world champion has won the race four times in the past five years and starts the weekend as strong favourite on a track that is expected to suit his Mercedes vehicle.

The bosses at Silverstone Circuit have agreed a five-year deal with Formula One to continue hosting the British Grand Prix until at least 2024.

Pierre Gasly was delighted with his performance on Friday at the British Grand Prix, as he topped the first practice session and finishing three tenths ahead of teammate Max Verstappen in FP2. "Who knows if I will still be here then?" said the 34-year-old Hamilton, who is under contractat Mercedes until 2020.

Lewis Hamilton was spending Friday night figuring out how to get his Mercedes in a better position to challenge in qualifying as he pursues a record sixth British Grand Prix win.

"George is in a team that has struggled for some time but is a part of helping them take the steps to improve".

"Even though I'm not fully comfortable yet we're not that far away and the times are pretty close which is a positive".

"But clearly in view of the huge economic impact this has on the economy here, we think there are ways for us to work with local and national governments, and our new contract gives us more flexibility to do that, in ways that actually bring more value, not just to us ourselves, but also more value to the local and national economy. This has been a strong track for us in the past so hopefully this weekend it'll be a sweet spot for us".

His Mercedes team were well beaten by Max Verstappen's Red Bull at the last round in Austria where their auto struggled in the high temperatures.

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner raised eyebrows when he said he would "absolutely back" Verstappen were the Dutchman to race Hamilton in the same machinery, something the Briton was unwilling to discuss. "I don't compare myself to anybody". I don't really have a response to his claims.

Silverstone is owned by the British Racing Drivers' Club and its chairman, John Grant, said the new contract has clauses to protect the financial interests of the British Grand Prix.
